Carb-free, low-cal, low-fat, no-fat…with so many diet books, e-books, nutritionists, and celebrity-endorsed know-it-alls plaguing the health industry, how can you possibly know what to eat to get the best results for your body while keeping yourself healthy on the inside? After ten+ years of nutrition reading+experimenting, this ex-fat girl knows one thing: Every body, every FIGURE, is different. Each person’s body responds differently to food, exercise, low carb meals, and low fat meals. Each person lives a different lifestyle. Each woman is different and women are a whole heck of a lot different from men. STRONG FIGURE’s Nutrition page is designed to educate any person on the in’s and out’s of nutrition. How do carbohydrates actually work in your body? How much and what kind of fat should you be eating? Maybe you’re looking for healthy recipes or quick on-the-go low-carb meals?
Are you a STRONG FIGURE who pushes hard in the gym and lifts to eat? Many of the recipes, blog posts, and articles are geared just for YOU.
P.S. That pizza up there? It’s ultra low carb, packed with protein, and gluten free.

DH Kiefer wrote the books on Carb Back-Loading and Carb-Nite Solution and well, he’s a genius when it comes to fat loss. Especially fat loss for people who have A) Struggled their whole lives to lose weight, and B) Who are serious about lifting weights and looking good. His knowledge is backed by YEARS of research, practice, and scientific evidence. He’s more than just a physicist; he’s sort of like a god when it comes to losing FAT and gaining MUSCLE. I’ve experimented with both his programs and can attest to each. I’ve experimented with both programs and use a combination of the two to form a base for my nutritional guidelines.
Kiefer on Carb-Nite: “I understand how frustrating it is to lose those first 30 pounds because that’s where I started. I also understand the torment of trying to lose the last 10. The Carb Nite™Solution has allowed me and countless others to control body fat for years. I promise, it can do the same for you.”
Kiefer on Carb Back-Loading: “I don’t eat on a schedule anymore. I make gains in the gym with little effort, even training a total of 3 hours a week; I eat cherry turnovers, hamburgers and fries, ice cream and cheesecake and guess what? I wake up every morning to a toned, muscular body, and a six-pack of abs.”

Gluten is a protein composite found in wheat and several other food products. About 75% of America’s population is sensitive to gluten and many people live unaware of gluten and its effects on the body. Celiac Disease, a complete intolerance to gluten, affects roughly 1 in 133 Americans and there is no cure other than removing all gluten and products containing gluten from the diet.
